Introducing TEDDS and TEDDS for Word

Checking your package
Your TEDDS package contains a CD, and a Quick Start Guide in a DVD case. If your package is not complete, please contact your TEDDS supplier immediately.

TEDDS and TEDDS for Word – what’s the difference?
You can run TEDDS in two modes. One - which we call just TEDDS - is very simple, very powerful, completely self-contained and requires no knowledge of any other package. This mode gives you access to all the major pro-forma calculations and to most utilities. This mode is the best place to start using TEDDS. The other mode - TEDDS for Word - is even more powerful and is entirely integrated with Microsoft® Word - in fact it operates in Word. So, of course, you need Word (and it helps to have a little knowledge of it). In this mode you can run all the TEDDS pro-formas and utilities and also have all the editing features of Word at your disposal to create really complete and professional looking reports. In this mode you can also write your own pro-forma calculations. This documentation covers TEDDS.

Introducing TEDDS features
Make no mistake, TEDDS is a very powerful application which allows you to run an extensive range of pro-forma calculations interactively. With TEDDS you can produce sophisticated calculations over a wide engineering-base quickly and very, very easily. As you create calculations in TEDDS you have access to all the engineering data that you need — properties of sections, safe load tables, graphs… … — for the calculation, without a reference book in sight! All this is available, right there, as you run the pro-forma.

TEDDS documentation
TEDDS comes with the following documentation: Quick Start Guide — The aim of this document is to get you up and running with TEDDS in the shortest possible time. You will find the printed version of the Quick Start Guide inside the case which contains the TEDDS CD(1). Whether you are a new user of TEDDS, or are updating from a previous version we would strongly recommend that you work through the Guide, even if you don’t look at any of the other documentation supplied with TEDDS. User’s Guide(2) — This electronic reference document contains complete details of all TEDDS features. It tells you the different ways in which you can access each feature, and contains examples of each TEDDS function. Worked Example(2) — Details a typical process for producing a set of calculations within TEDDS. Engineer’s Handbook(2) — Provides details of all the functions and tools which allow you to produce a vast range of engineering calculations using TEDDS. TEDDS also provides an electronic version of the above documents which you can access through the TEDDS help system.

Footnotes (1) The Quick Start Guide is also provided in electronic format, and is installed with TEDDS. (2) An electronic document in Adobe Acrobat format. The reader for this document is contained on the TEDDS CD, and is available from the Adobe web site.

TEDDS Documentation page 14

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

Chapter 2

Using TEDDS
This document only covers using TEDDS in its stand-alone mode. The documentation for TEDDS for Word is in a separate manual.

Launching TEDDS
In order to launch TEDDS, you must already have Windows running. You can then launch TEDDS, and start a new calculation or load an existing one.

From the Start Menu
1. You launch TEDDS in the same way as you would any other Windows program. 2. When you start TEDDS you will normally see the TEDDS - Start Wizard(1).

3. Click the TEDDS option and then click Start.

Using the desktop short cut
TEDDS installation automatically creates a short cut icon, Start TEDDS, on your Desktop.
Footnotes (1) If there is only one version of TEDDS enabled on your computer, then you will not see the TEDDS - Start Wizard, that version of TEDDS will start immediately.

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 15

Double click the Start TEDDS icon to start the TEDDS - Start Wizard and proceed as above.

First calculations
If you are new to TEDDS and are wondering where to start, then we would recommend that you work through the TEDDS Quick Start Guide which you will find in the case which contains the TEDDS CD. This introduces you to TEDDS and TEDDS for Word, and works through a series of examples aimed at getting you up and running with TEDDS in the shortest possible time.

Familiarisation
Take a few seconds to acquaint yourself with the TEDDS window. Become familiar with the various parts so that you can work quickly and efficiently.
TEDDS Menu Bar TEDDS Toolbar

TEDDS calculation

TEDDS Menu Bar — this allows you to access all TEDDS’ features. TEDDS Toolbar — allows you to access TEDDS’ features by clicking the appropriate icon.

TEDDS Documentation page 16

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

If you allow the pointer to rest over an icon, you will see a tooltip which confirms the action that the icon will perform, however this is generally self-evident from the icon image and text. The options provided by the TEDDS toolbar are covered in depth in Appendix I – Toolbars and Icons — The TEDDS toolbar. TEDDS Calculation — shows a calculation which you have performed in TEDDS. Until you have run a pro-forma calculation this part of the dialog remains empty. Related topics

• “The TEDDS toolbar”

Calculating in TEDDS
TEDDS is simplicity itself to use; all you need to do is to pick the calculation you want from the extensive library of calculations. TEDDS runs the calculation automatically and prompts you for the information that it requires. If the calculation requires information which you would traditionally obtain from a printed source (a book of section properties, safe load tables, code graphs… …), then TEDDS allows you to pick those details from a data list, a data table or a data graph. Once you have completed the input and made the appropriate selections TEDDS will complete the calculations and show you the results. Once you have performed the calculation you can save it to disc, send it to a range of destinations, print it or recalculate it. Related topics

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 17

Picking a calculation
When you start TEDDS, the main window opens, and you will immediately see the Calc Wizard dialog.

If you want to create a new calculation while TEDDS is running click the New Calc icon. Again you will see the Calc Wizard dialog. 1. The Show list allows you to pick which calculations you want to see(1). Pick the option that you require. 2. The main body of the dialog shows all the major headings that are available for the shown calculations.
Footnotes (1) The list that you see depends on the particular locale which TEDDS is currently configured to use. Typically the list options allow you to view the calculations by element type and by material. Other options may be available, for instance to see calculations which use a particular set of units, or calculations which you have downloaded from the TEDDS web site– these depend entirely on the locale and on your previous TEDDS usage (if your locales calculations use only SI units, then there will not be an option to list calculations which use imperial units, if you haven’t downloaded any calculations, then the CSC Downloads option will be blank.)

TEDDS Documentation page 18

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

3. Click on the header for the type of calculation in which you are interested, and the heading opens to show the calculations that it contains.

4. Either double click the calculation name, or single click it and then click Calculate(1). 5. TEDDS will perform the calculation for you, invoking any data lists, data tables… which the calculations require(2). Related topics

• • • •

“Data Lists”, “Data Tables”, “Data Graphs”, “Section Properties Tool”.

Footnotes (1) If you use this option, the notes panel (the right-hand side of the Wizard) will show any notes which are appropriate to the calculation. (2) If you run one of the calculations which allow you to work with a custom section, then TEDDS will automatically invoke the Section Properties Tool.

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 19

During a calculation
Once you have started calculating, all of the TEDDS calculations share a similar style of interface. Important interface details are listed below.
An 'i' symbol ( ) to the left of a variable description shows that there is more information available about this particular variable. The yellow information area (at the top of the dialog) displays any information about the selected variable (if available). You can also see this information by hovering the cursor over the 'i' symbol Enter information in the right hand column. Where appropriate, variables may have validation and prevent invalid information being entered A button will allow you to enter more information or select a particular item. At the bottom of the interface you can click Next to continue to the next page, Back to return to a previous page, or Cancel to stop the calculations at the current point.

In the left hand column are: Notes which display details on the calculations being performed, Sketches which display an appropriate sketch for the calculations, Variables this lists all the current variables, values can be selected from here to enter into the current interface, Feedback this allows you to send feedback to the development team.

Reviewing a calculation
Understanding Hidden text — When you create hand calculations of your own, you generally only record important steps on paper, intermediate calculations are done on scrap paper, or directly into your calculator. TEDDS needs to perform these intermediate calculations too, in order to obtain their results for subsequent use. If all these calculations were visible (and printable), then the complete set of calculations would be inordinately long and convoluted.

TEDDS Documentation page 20

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS handles this by using hidden text – the calculations are in the pro-forma calculation, but normally you neither see or print them. The difference between these TEDDS calculations and the intermediate calculations that you perform on-the-fly, is that the TEDDS calculations are there for you to look at if you so require. To review such calculations simply pick View/Hidden Text and you will see every calculation in the TEDDS pro-forma. To hide the text again simply repeat the process. Semicolons — Similarly with hand calculations, you will often perform several simple calculations on a single line to save paper, again TEDDS needs to perform these calculations, and some of these are too important to be dealt with by hiding them – for instance core properties which form the basis for many subsequent calculations, and which are necessary for checking purposes. TEDDS allows any number of calculations to be performed on a single line, but it needs to know where each separate calculation starts and ends. For this reason the TEDDS pro-formas use the semicolon (;) to separate calculations. In order to avoid any distraction to the flow of calculations TEDDS usually hides these semicolons. If you want to see them in order to determine the different calculations on a line pick View/Semicolons and you will see them. To hide them again simply repeat this process. Zoom — Generally TEDDS shows the results of a calculation so that everything has the size it will have if printed. This may mean that some of the calculations may be too small to review easily on screen. Conversely with a large calculation you may want to see an overview of several pages of calculation together. TEDDS allows you to zoom the display to achieve this. To zoom the display pick View/Zoom»Zoom level to zoom by the appropriate percentage (50%, 100%, 150% or 200%). Variables — As TEDDS performs calculations it stores the results as variables. Generally you will see these in the calculations (some may be in hidden text). If you want to see the final result of a particular variable, then you can access this directly instead of having to search through the entire document.

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 21

To see the Variables dialog pick Tools/Variables…

The Variable Manager page allows you either to pick individual variables and delete them, or to delete all variables for this calculation(1). If you want to view the variables without risking deleting them, then click the Document tab which simply shows all the variables in the document. The System tab shows all the pre-defined variables that TEDDS recognises.

After a calculation
Once a calculation is complete, you have several choices. Re-calculate the document — Re-calculating the document allows you to change any data in the interface. To re-calculate the document click Re-calculate on the toolbar. All variables and settings are remembered for the calculation. Change the header details — Click Header on the TEDDS toolbar to change the details shown in the document’s heading, or to choose a different template which will change the look and feel of your calculations.
Footnotes (1) This does not change the results that are shown in the document, it simply deletes the variables that are used to create them. If you recalculate the document, then you will need to define all the details again from scratch.

TEDDS Documentation page 22

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

Create a new document — Click New Calc on the TEDDS toolbar to open the TEDDS Calc Wizard and select a new calculation. TEDDS can have more than one document open at once. To view open documents or to change between them use the Windows menu. Send the contents of the document elsewhere — Allows you to export the current calculation to a range of destinations. To export the document, click Send To on the TEDDS toolbar. Whether the export is controlled by a wizard, sent to Word, TEDDS for Word, an e-mail recipient, a file or the Windows clipboard is determined by the icon visible on the button. To change the destination to which the document is exported, click on the arrow to the right of Send To and select the option you require. The last option selected will remain the default. Sending the finished calculation to Word will copy all of the text into a Word document. Sending the finished calculation into TEDDS for Word will copy the calculations and all the variables into TEDDS for Word so that they can be re-calculated. If you regularly want to send calculations to different destinations, then choose the Wizard… option. This allows you to pick the destination you want to use each time you click Send To. Open an existing document — Click Open on the TEDDS toolbar and select the document you wish to open. TEDDS documents have the file extension .ted. Save the document — Click Save on the TEDDS toolbar. You will then have to specify a file name and location. Once you have saved a document, you can open and re-use it again, as can anyone with access to TEDDS. All of the input, settings and variables are saved in a single TEDDS document (with a .ted file extension). Print the document — Click Print on the TEDDS toolbar.

Controlling the calculation sheet details
TEDDS comes with a series of templates for you to use for your calculations. You can add your company details and logo to the sheets, and can also set the details which are specific to a particular job.

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 23

1. Click Header on the TEDDS toolbar, or pick Edit/Header… from the menu in order to change these details, then click on the Document tab.

You use this page to set the details that are appropriate to this calculation. The boxes that you see depend on the current template. If you change the template, then you may have to set additional information. You can easily copy the Document details from one document to another. a) Ensure that you have both the document whose details you want to copy, and the one to which you want to copy those details open. b) Switch to the document whose details you want to copy and view its header details as described above. c) Click Copy All to copy all the document details. d) Switch to the document which is to receive the copied details and again view its header details. e) Click Paste All to paste the copied details into this header.

2. Once you have finished on the Document tab click the Company tab to set these details.

This page allows you to define the details on the calculation sheet which are appropriate to your organisation. You can configure TEDDS so that it sets the same details for every new calculation that you create, however you can then modify these details on a document by document basis. If you want TEDDS to use the details which you have defined here, then check the Save these settings … … box.

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

TEDDS Documentation page 25

3. Once you have finished on the Company tab click the Template tab to set these details.

This tab controls the look and feel of your document. TEDDS comes with a range of standard styles from which you can select (click Select… to view the available styles). You can add your own company logo to the calculation template, simply Browse… to find the file, then Open it to use it. You can choose to maintain a link to your logo file, in which case if the logo image on disc changes your calculation template will show the modified logo, or you can embed the logo, in which case the current logo will be maintained even if the source file changes. You can also scale the logo file so that it fits correctly into your chosen calculation header. If you want TEDDS to use the details which you have defined here, for all future documents then check the Save these settings … … box. If you choose a template whose layout you like, but for which the labels to the various boxes are not as you require them, then you can change the labels to meet your requirements.

TEDDS Documentation page 26

Chapter 2 : Using TEDDS

1. To change these click Edit Labels…

The boxes that you see depend on the current template in force. If you change to a different template, then some labels may not be appropriate and/or you may have to set new labels (appropriate to the template) to meet your requirements. Make the changes you require to the labels and then click OK to register them. 2. Once you have defined the details you require for your Header Properties click OK to use them.

Configuring settings
There are a series of options which you can set to configure the way that you and TEDDS work together.

To set options
1. Click Tools/Options…

The Options dialog allows you to access a wide range of TEDDS settings. These are detailed below.

TEDDS Documentation page 28

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Documents – Template options These options allow you to choose the default template that you want to use for the documents you create in TEDDS. You can choose a logo to use in the template, either creating a link to the image file, or embedding it in the template. You can also scale the logo so that it fits the space in the template correctly.

For further details see “Controlling the calculation sheet details”, however note that the settings you make here will always affect every new document.

Send To – Word options These options allow you to control the transfer of your TEDDS calculations to Microsoft Word (running without TEDDS).

Make the appropriate settings: • New document — to create a new document for the calculation,

• Append to active document — to have the calculation added to the end of your current document, • Insert in active document — to have the calculation placed within your current document at the
insertion point position. In the latter two cases, if you have no active document, then the send to operation will create a new document (launching Word if necessary). If the Send To process needs to create a new document to contain the results of your calculations, then you can specify the Word template that you want it to use. If you don’t choose a specific template, then the send to process will use the Normal one. You should ensure that you don’t choose a TEDDS for Word template here, since if you do, your sent file will also require TEDDS for Word to run. If you do want to send a calculation from TEDDS to TEDDS for Word, then you should use the Send to – TEDDS for Word command instead.

TEDDS Documentation page 32

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Send To – TEDDS for Word options These options allow you to control the transfer of your TEDDS calculations to TEDDS for Word.

This option always sends the calculation to a new TEDDS for Word document. This is done to ensure that you don’t have variable conflicts etc. within your TEDDS for Word calculation. You should ensure that you do choose a TEDDS for Word template here, since if you don’t, the TEDDS for Word document will not contain the settings that TEDDS for Word needs to calculate correctly.

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

TEDDS Documentation page 33

Send To – Email options These options allow you to control the sending of your TEDDS calculation to someone by email.

This option is only effective if the Document – Template option to link to a logo file is checked. If you check Embed header logo in document, then TEDDS will embed the logo file before it sends the email. If you don’t check this option, then TEDDS will maintain the current link details. In this case the recipient of the email will only see the logo if the logo file already exists and is in the same directory location on their computer as it is on yours.

Calculating – General options These options allow you to control the way that TEDDS performs calculations.

TEDDS and TEDDS for Word perform calculations in exactly the same way, using the same calculation engine. Within TEDDS for Word you can use these General options to control the calculation process. These options should be set as shown above when you are using TEDDS, their availability here is purely to allow you to revert to the settings shown above if you, or another user have changed from these.

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

TEDDS Documentation page 35

Calculating – Calc Items options This option controls the way that TEDDS scales large Enhanced Metafile Format pictures to fit them into your calculations.

Maximum output scale — If you return a calculation item which contains a large Enhanced Metafile format picture, then this option allows you to tell TEDDS to scale this to fit it in your calculations. The Maximum output scale is the maximum percentage of the current page width that the image can occupy before it will be scaled, and it will be scaled down to fit in the percentage of the page width defined as the Maximum output scale.

TEDDS Documentation page 36

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Calculating – Results options These options control the way that TEDDS shows calculated results to differentiate them from the rest of your calculations.

Use paragraph style — If you pick this option, then TEDDS writes the results back to the document using the same style as that of the paragraph in which the result occurs. This is useful if you have calculations in a number of different styles, and you want the results to blend in with the rest of the paragraph text. On the other hand if you use a distinctive style for your results (see below) it is far easier to see exactly which part of your calculations have been previously defined, and which have been generated as part of a calculation by TEDDS. Use following style — This option tells TEDDS to use a single font face, style, size and colour for all calculated results. TEDDS uses this style irrespective of the font styles in your document. To set the style click Font… and choose the appropriate font details from the fonts available on your system. Result format and precision — These lists allow you to set the default type and precision for intermediate and final results fields. The available types are: • Fixed (F)

• Scientific (S) • General (G)

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

TEDDS Documentation page 37

• Engineering (E)
Underline Results — Check this box to make TEDDS underline all the final results in your document. This additional aid helps you to identify TEDDS’ calculated values. Calculating – Progress options These options control the way in which TEDDS shows the progress of the calculations to you.

Use simple progress window — If you check this box, TEDDS only shows a simple progress bar which indicates how far you are through the calculations(1).

Footnotes (1) If a particular pro-forma calculation contains loops, then you may see the progress bar move backwards as the loops are encountered.

TEDDS Documentation page 38

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Use progress log window — If you check this option, TEDDS shows a Progress Log which gives you brief details (a typical example is shown below) of the calculations during their evaluation.

Clear when starting calculations — If you check this option, then TEDDS clears the Progress Log when it starts a calculation, otherwise it adds the details for new calculations to the end of the log. Close when finished calculations — If you check this option, then TEDDS closes the Progress Log when the calculations end, otherwise the Progress Log remains open. Related topics

Calculating – Regional Settings options These options control the locale whose specific calculations you are using, and (for some locales) the system of units you prefer to use.

Locale — Choose the Locale whose specific calculations and data you want to use(1). Base units — For North American locales TEDDS can work either in US Imperial, or in SI Metric units. Simply choose the unit system in which you want to work. In other locales only metric units are available. This setting determines the base units that TEDDS uses to store variable values and the units it uses to show values when no specific units are defined. Calculations can use both metric and imperial units for any locale setting. Number and expression format — This option controls the characters that TEDDS uses for the decimal symbol, the list separator, and the expression terminator. This is part of the continued globalisation of TEDDS and allows calculations to be written in languages where, for example, the comma is used to represent the start of the decimal part of a number. You should never change this setting manually, when necessary it will automatically change depending on the locale you select. If you do change this setting manually, then any existing calculations are very unlikely to work.
Footnotes (1) If you have purchased a copy of TEDDS for only one locale, then you can not alter this setting.

TEDDS Documentation page 40

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Calculating – Errors options These options control the way that TEDDS shows errors to differentiate them from the rest of your calculations.

Use paragraph style — If you pick this option, then TEDDS writes errors to your calculation using the same style as that of the paragraph in which the result occurs. Since you will normally want to locate errors quickly we recommend that you don’t use this option. If you use a distinctive style for errors (see below) it is far easier to see exactly where the error has occurred. Use following style — This option tells TEDDS to use a single font face, style, size and colour for errors. TEDDS uses this style irrespective of the font styles in your document. To set the style click Font… and choose the appropriate font details from the fonts available on your system.

Setup – Calc Wizard options These options allow you to tell the Calcs Wizard where it will find User and System index directories.

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

TEDDS Documentation page 43

When you install TEDDS some standard settings are initialised (shown above). The Downloads directories relate to locations where TEDDS will store indices should you choose to download calcs via the TEDDS web site. To add an index — Click Add to create a new Index directory entry. Change the Name to one that indicates the contents that the index will contain. Either enter the full path to the directory which contains the index sets, or use Browse… to locate it. Set the Priority of the elements in this directory. When TEDDS generates the index it will place directories with the lowest priority first, and then list them in order of increasing priority. You can see this clearly if you look at the Priorities on the System tab. Choose how TEDDS is to handle the index when an index directory contains several calc files. Check Merge all files in directory into a single Set, if you want to see a single list of entries gleaned from all calc sets in the directory. Don’t check this option if you want to see a separate tree-like structure with one entry for each calc set in the directory. You will then need to click on the particular entry whose contents you want to see.

Setup – Calc Libraries options These options allow you to control the locations of the system and user library files.

The User options are used by TEDDS for Word, their inclusion here allows you to access calculations you have written in TEDDS for Word when you are using TEDDS. User Library directory — You can select the location where you want to locate your user libraries. You can either type the location in directly or use Browse… to select it graphically. We strongly advise that you don’t use the same location for your system and user libraries (that is don’t set your user library directory to the same location as your system library directory). This will help you to differentiate between the two different library types at a glance. System Library directory — This shows the location of the system libraries – set at installation.

Setup – Update Service options These options allow you to control the operation of the TEDDS Update Service which provides updates to TEDDS via the internet(1).

Enable update service — Check this option to use the update service. If you don’t, the TEDDS Start Wizard will not check for updates, neither will you be able to update TEDDS for Word manually from the Help menu. If you only check Enable update service, then you will need to update TEDDS for Word manually. To do this click Help/TEDDS Check for Updates. Automatically check for updates from the TEDDS Start Wizard — check this option and the TEDDS Start Wizard will check for critical updates every time it is run(1). If critical updates are available you will be informed. You can then choose whether or not do download and install these. Only check once each day — If you check this option, then the TEDDS Start Wizard only checks for critical updates once a day. Once the update process is successful the TEDDS Start Wizard does not check for updates until the following day.

Footnotes (1) You must have an open internet connection to use this feature.

TEDDS Documentation page 48

Chapter 3 : Configuring settings

Check for non-critical updates every xx day(s) — In addition to critical updates, we may make other updates from time to time – new calculations, new information, and so on. The TEDDS Start Wizard only checks for these after the elapsed time which you set(1). A setting of 1 would cause the TEDDS Start Wizard to check for non-critical updates every day(1), 7 would check for non-critical updates every week and so on. Profiles – Options options These options allow you to save different TEDDS settings for a series of users. If you enable this option, then all settings that you make from any Options dialog are saved to the profile, you simply choose the profile when you launch TEDDS to reinstate the settings. If you do use profiles, then this option allows you to move your profiles between computers.

Remember profile — If you check this option (recommended), then TEDDS will not ask you to pick a profile during start up. It will use the profile that was selected when it last started. Import/Export profiles — If you have created new profiles, or tailored the default profile to suit your way of working, then you can export these settings from one machine, and import them on another so that you do not have to repeat your customisation. Click the appropriate button, and then pick an appropriate location(1).

Data Lists

What is a Data List?
A Data List is a powerful tool which allows you to: • access data for a wide range of items, from a simple interface. The data lists which are available include section properties, grade stresses, design strengths… …,

• select a specific item in a data list and view its properties on the screen, • return the properties for a selected item to your calculations. These properties are held as variables
in the calculation and are thus available for TEDDS to use as the calculations progress.

Starting Data Lists
Data Lists starts automatically when a calculation requires it. The data list is the one that the calculation requires at this point. A typical annotated example is shown below.

Page pane

Item pane

Pane divider

All data lists work in the same way: • you pick an item type (Universal Beams, Universal Columns, …) from the page pane,

• you pick an item from the item pane (in the data list above the 406 178 UB 54 is selected),

TEDDS Documentation page 52

Chapter 5 : Data Lists

• You click Select to return the information that the data lists holds for this item to your calculation.

Manipulating the view of the Data List
When Data Lists starts, its size and position are as at its last use. Data Lists resets the relative proportions of the Page pane (the left-hand-side of the dialog) and Item pane (the right-hand-side) to those specified during that data list’s creation. You can drag the pane divider (the vertical line between the page and item panes) to alter their relative proportions.

Choosing the item to be returned
Choosing the item whose values are to be returned into your calculations is a simple process. 1. Click the page containing the type of items you wish to return. 2. Click the actual item which is to be returned(1). 3. Click Select to confirm your choice.

To choose the page containing the required item type
1. Scroll the Page pane so that you can see the page your require. 2. Click the page icon or page text to select that page. 3. The Page Title confirms your selection.

To choose the required item
Using the scroll bars 1. Scroll the Item Pane until you can see the item you require. 2. Click on the right-hand-most column to pick the particular item you require. The Selected Item details confirm your selection.
Footnotes (1) You can also double click an item to return it to your calculation without needing to click Select.

Chapter 5 : Data Lists

TEDDS Documentation page 53

If the Item pane contains a large number of entries this may be somewhat cumbersome. You may find the method below quicker. Using the keyboard In order to use this method you need to know a little information about the item you require. 1. Pick the item type from the Page pane. 2. Click anywhere in the first column of the Item pane. 3. Type in the first character of the item in which you are interested. This will instantly set the Item pane to show the first item starting with this character. For example to pick a 610 universal beam from the European Steel Sections data list, you would click in the first column and type 6 to move directly to the 610 beams. 4. If this is not the correct item, press the character again to move to the next item starting with this character. Repeat this step until you are in the correct area of items. Following on from the above, you would type 6 again and the data list would show the 686 beams. 5. If there is more than one column of item information, then to choose a particular item, then you need to click in the right-most column against the lowest level of information to select a single item. So you would click 140 to pick a 686 254 UB 140. 6. The Selected Item details confirm your selection.

Viewing the values stored in the Data List for a chosen item
With an item selected, you can see all the details held for it in the data list.

To view the information held for a item
1. Select the item whose information you wish to view as detailed above.

2. Click Details, to see the information that the data list holds for that item.

If you pick different items with the Details dialog open it will show the information for the currently selected item. You can thus compare different item’s properties quickly and easily. The Details dialog closes automatically when you click Select or Cancel.

Returning the item details to your calculations
You can return the details for an item to your calculation for instant use in any calculations which follow the Data List call.

To return item details to your calculations
1. Select the item whose information you wish to return as detailed above. 2. Either click Select or double click the item itself.

Data Tables

Introducing Data Tables features
Welcome to Data Tables, a powerful tool which allows you to: • access a wide range of data tables including:

• Design Tables, • Section Tables, • Proprietary Manufacturers Data … …, • • • •
search any table using wide ranging criteria, interpolate tables to see the values that you require, select specific items graphically, automatically selecting them in all open tables, return details from some or all tables into your calculation sheets as variables,

Where the calculations require it Data Tables can open several tables at once, for example the calculations might require the properties of a section, safe load tables, strengths and such like.

TEDDS Documentation page 56

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

Starting Data Tables
Data Tables starts automatically when a calculation requires it, and will show the table(s) which the calculation requires. A typical example is shown below.

To make a selection in a table, simply click at the intersection of a row and column. In the above example the selection is for a 152 152 UC 37 with an effective length of 5 m. It is the compression resistance for this section at this effective length which Data Tables will return to your document if you click Copy to calcs, or double click the row and column intersection.

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

TEDDS Documentation page 57

Working with Data Tables
When you make your selections, and return these to your calculation then, as well as the variables that your calculations require TEDDS records the details of: • the open tables,

• the selections you have made, and • all appropriate interpolations.
This means that when you re-calculate your calculations Data Tables will show the correct tables, selections and interpolations. You can then make any requisite changes.

Selecting a specific item from the table
You select an item simply by clicking in the table, TEDDS indicates the selection using a colour specified by your current options. After selection you can return the information for your selection to your calculations. If your selections in a table are not sufficient to identify a unique item, then the variable on the Variables page shows Needs selecting.

TEDDS Documentation page 58

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

To make a selection from a table
1. Select the cell in the table at the intersection of the row and column you require, alternatively choose the header area of the column containing the reference of the item which you want to select and then the header area for its row.

To select a 152 x 152 x 37 UC with an effective length of 5.00 m click the cell at the intersection of the 152 x 152 x 37 UC row and the 5.00 m effective length – the cell has the value of 923 kN. Alternatively click the header cell for the 5.00 m effective length table column and then click the header cell for the 152 x 152 x 37 UC row. If you have set search criteria for the table, you cannot select items which fail to meet them.

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

TEDDS Documentation page 59

Interpolating data within a table
If a table contains information which may be interpolated, then you can interpolate the table linearly in Data Tables. If interpolation is not allowed for a particular table, then Data Tables disables the interpolation icon and menu command to prevent it.

To interpolate within a table
Consider the table shown above, and say that we want the values of compression resistance for an effective length of 4.85 m. 1. Click Interpolate or Edit/Interpolate. Data Tables shows the Interpolate dialog. You use this dialog to perform the interpolation.

2. In the Range Items list you will see a list of items for which interpolation is possible. Choose the item which you want to interpolate. 3. The values in the Range Values list show the table’s current entries. To add a new entry to the list enter the appropriate value into the Value to be added box, so for our example this would be 4.85. Data Tables will not extrapolate tables, thus the Value to be added must be greater than the smallest value and smaller than the greatest value in the Range Item list.

TEDDS Documentation page 60

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

4. Click Interpolate. Data Tables performs the interpolation, and updates the table to include this.

5. You can add further interpolations to obtain the exact results you require. If you want to perform other interpolations, then you will find that the Range Values list shows any previously interpolated values at the end of the list. If you make selections within a table, Data Tables automatically transfers the existing selection to the interpolated value.

To clear interpolations
If you have made a series of interpolations, you may want to clear these in order to return the table to its original condition. 1. Click Edit/Clear Interpolations

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

TEDDS Documentation page 61

All the interpolations are cleared and the table is returned to its initial condition. When you return Data Tables information to your calculations, TEDDS only stores the interpolations which are relevant to the selections you have made. For example if you have interpolated a table to see effective lengths of 3.85, 4.25 and 4.75 m, and selected an item for return to your calculation at the 4.25 m length, then when you re-calculate the calculation Data Tables will only interpolate to show the 4.25 m length, the interpolations to 3.85 and 4.75 m will be lost.

Searching the table for specific information
You can easily search a table for information which matches specific criteria. The matching information is identified using a colour of your choice, making it easy to identify those items which satisfy your search criteria.

To search a table for specific information
1. Click Search. Data Tables shows the Search Criteria dialog which you to give details of the search you require.

2. Choose the item for which you want to search from the Search for list.

TEDDS Documentation page 62

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

3. Now use the Criterion 1 list box to choose the search condition that you require.

4. In the Criterion 1 box enter the specific search value. 5. Optionally you can use the Criterion 2 area to limit your search further. You also need to specify whether Criterion 2 is additional or alternative to the Criterion 1 – the And and Or radio buttons allow for this. Once you set search criteria for an item, the Search for list shows the search icon ( ) beside that entry in the Search for list. 6. If you want to apply search conditions for other items, then repeat steps 2 to 4 for each of these.

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

TEDDS Documentation page 63

7. When you have completely specified your search click OK to perform it. The table re-displays, highlighting those items that match all your search criteria.

The text for the values that don’t meet the search criteria are shown in the current Excluded Value Text colour. Once you set search criteria their details are shown to the right of the display on the Variables page.

To change the search criteria for a table
1. Click Search ( ).

TEDDS Documentation page 64

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

Data Tables displays the Search Criteria dialog, showing the current search criteria.

2. To change the criteria for an item choose it from the Search for list and then alter the Criterion and /or the Value. 3. To remove all search criteria for an item set Criterion 1 to None. This removes all searching for this item and removes the search icon from the Search for list.

To clear all searches
If you want to clear all the searches that you have defined, then click Edit/Clear Search.

Understanding linked tables
When your calculation opens a group of tables, you will find that although each table contains different information, the items available in each table are similar. For instance, if you are performing the design of a strut, the calculation may open a table of section properties, and one of safe loads. When you make a selection in one table (in our example this could be a strut capacity at a given effective length for a particular section size) Data Tables also selects the same section size in the other table (unless the section does not meet the search criteria you have set for that table). This means that with a single selection you can set Data Tables to return the section properties and strut capacity information to your calculations.

Chapter 6 : Data Tables

TEDDS Documentation page 65

Returning information to your calculations
Once you have made your selections from the group of data tables you have open, you will want to return the appropriate information from one or more of these tables to your calculation sheet, for use in further calculations.

To return information to your calculations
1. To return the information from the individual tables to your calculation sheet simply double click the selected item or the header area of the table. Alternatively select the item and then click Copy to Calcs or File/Copy to Calcs and Exit. 2. If you have more than one table open, then you will see a list of all the individual tables which are open. Check those whose information you want to return.

The only checked check box is that for the currently selected table. If you want to return information from the other open tables you must ensure that you check their boxes. You can not return information to your calculations from any table where you haven’t made a proper selection. In such cases the Return Options list entry for that table is disabled. You can either use Cancel to return to Data Tables and make a valid selection, or you can continue, in which case Data Tables only returns information from those tables which have valid selections. 3. Click OK to return the variables from Data Tables into your calculation.

TEDDS Documentation page 66

To avoid returning information to your calculations
If you do not want to transfer information from Data Tables to your calculations, then click File/Exit Without Copy. This shuts Data Tables without returning any information to your calculation. If you do choose this option, then any remaining calculations which require details from the data tables will not calculate correctly.

Closing Data Tables
You can either close Data Tables, returning variables, and a data table call to your calculation sheet, or you can close Data Tables without returning any information other than the Data Table call to your calculation sheet.

Data Graphs

Introducing Data Graphs features
Welcome to Data Graphs, a powerful tool which allows you to: • access a wide range of data graphs including:

• Design Curves, • Proprietary Manufacturers Data … …, • interpolate graphs to obtain specific values that you require, • return details from graphs into your calculation sheets as variables.
When you have interpolated a data graph, Data Graphs automatically reconfigures the graphs to take account of these interpolations when you re-calculate your calculations.

TEDDS Documentation page 68

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

Starting Data Graphs
Data Graphs starts automatically when a calculation requires it, showing the required graph. A typical example is shown below.

To make a selection in a graph, simply click the particular line you want to use, and then click the appropriate point on that line. In the above example the line for a_over_d equal to 0.8 is selected and the value returned to your calculation will be that for d_over_t equal to 205. In this case this will be that qw equals 86 N/mm2.

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

TEDDS Documentation page 69

Working with Data Graphs
When you make your selections from Data Graphs, and return these to your calculation, then Data Graphs returns the variables, details of the graph, details of your selections and all appropriate interpolations. Thus if you re-calculate your calculations Data Graphs shows the correct graph, selections and interpolations. You can then make any new selections that your calculations need.

Selecting a specific item from the graph
You can easily select a curve and a point from a graph. The information for the selected point can be returned to your calculation sheet. If you have not made a selection from the graph, then the variables values on the Variables page will be blank.

TEDDS Documentation page 70

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

To make a selection from a graph
1. When you first see the Data Graph window for a new calculation no curve will be selected.

2. Move the cursor over the curve which is of interest and then click that curve. If you allow the cursor to rest over a curve, then you will see a pop-up note indicating the curve’s parameters.

Alternatively choose the curve from the drop-down list of available curves. Whichever method you choose the curve will be highlighted using the colour and style that you set in your User Options.

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

TEDDS Documentation page 71

3. Click over the curve again at the point of interest, you will see a set of cross-hairs that you can drag along the curve to locate a particular point.

TEDDS Documentation page 72

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

4. If you require the details at a precise location, then you can type the appropriate details into the text box at the top of the graph. The cross-hairs will then jump to that point.

Interpolating data within a graph
If a graph allows interpolation, then Data Graphs also allows this.

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

TEDDS Documentation page 73

If interpolation is not allowed for the current graph, then Data Graphs disables the interpolation icon and menu command so that they cannot be used. Consider the graph:

This has curves for a_over_d equal to 0.6 and equal to 0.7. For this example let’s say we want the values for a_over_d equal to 0.65.

To interpolate within a graph
1. Click Interpolate ( ).

TEDDS Documentation page 74

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

The Interpolate dialog displays, allowing you to give details of the interpolation you want to perform.

2. Enter the New Value you want to add and then click OK.

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

TEDDS Documentation page 75

Data Graphs can not extrapolate graphs, thus the Value to be added must be greater than the smallest value and smaller than the largest value for the graph’s existing curves. 3. Use a similar process to interpolate further and obtain the exact results you require.

To clear interpolations
If you have made a series of interpolations, you may want to clear these in order to return the graph to its original condition. 1. Click Edit/Clear Interpolations Data Graphs clears all interpolations and returns the graph to its initial condition. When you save information from Data Graphs back to your calculation, then only those interpolations which are relevant to the selection you have made are stored.

Returning information to your calculations
Once you have made your selections from a graph you will want to return the appropriate information to your calculation sheet, for use in further calculations.

To return information to your calculations
1. To return the information from the graph to your calculation sheet simply click Copy to Calcs ( Alternatively click File/Copy to Calcs and Exit. ).

To avoid returning information to your calculations
If you do not want to transfer information back from Data Graphs to your calculation, then click File /Exit Without Copy. This shuts Data Graphs without returning any information to your calculation. If you choose this option, then any remaining calculations which require details from the data graph will not calculate correctly.

TEDDS Documentation page 76

Chapter 7 : Data Graphs

Closing Data Graphs
You can either close Data Graphs, returning variables, and a data graph call to your calculation sheet, or you can close Data Graphs without returning any information other than the Data Graph call to your calculation sheet.

To close Data Graphs returning variables
1. Click File/Copy to Calcs and Exit

To close Data Graphs without returning variables
1. Click File/Close Without Copy If you choose this option, then any remaining calculations which require details from the data graph will not calculate correctly.

Chapter 8

Section Properties Tool

Introducing the Section Properties Tool
Welcome to the Section Properties Tool. This tool allows you to define a section shape by assembling any number of simple primary shapes(1) (including holes if necessary). A typical example is shown below:

5z

Footnotes (1) Rectangles, circles and triangles.

TEDDS Documentation page 78

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

You can also recall any existing section from the Data Lists. This process automatically converts the section into the primary shapes which the Section Properties Tool requires. You can then work with the shapes from these recovered sections, combining them with other primary shapes directly and/or the primary shapes generated from other recovered sections. You can modify the size and position of the primary shapes in a wide variety of ways. The Section Properties Tool calculates the properties of the overall section based on the shapes it contains and their positions. You return these properties to your calculation ready for their subsequent use. The Section Properties Tool returns the details of the primary shapes and holes which make up your section to your document as variables. When you recalculate the document you will see the shape’s existing primary shapes in the Section Properties Tool ready for modification.

Starting the Section Properties Tool
If a particular calculation needs the Section Properties Tool to determine the properties of a section, then the Section Properties Tool appears when it is required.

Creating sections
You can define the sections whose properties you want to calculate in several ways. You can: • build them up entirely from primary shapes (rectangles, circles, triangles and holes),

• recover standard sections from many Data Lists, automatically representing these in the Section
Properties Tool using the most appropriate primary shapes,

• choose a standard section shape and then enter the appropriate details directly.

4. Release the mouse button to create the triangle. Related topics

• “To control whether the grid is displayed”, • “To control snapping to the grid”, • “To switch angle snapping on or off”.

Using the keyboard 1. Click Insert/Triangular Shape to see the Add triangle dialog.

2. Choose the orientation of the triangle using the appropriate button (the picture will show the triangle in the correct orientation and will indicate the nomenclature for the details that are required). Note this nomenclature and then enter the appropriate details. Once these are complete click Add to create the triangle.

To create a hole
You can only create holes using the keyboard. You start by identifying an existing shape and then add the hole to it. The following constraints apply to holes: • holes are not allowed within triangular shapes,

• holes must lie completely within the bounding rectangle of the shape to which they belong, • circular shapes can only contain a single hole which must be Circular on section and concentric
within the shape,

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 83

• rectangular shapes can contain any number of holes which may be Rectangular on elevation,
Circular on elevation or Rectangular on section. Using the keyboard 1. Select the shape to which you want to add a hole. 2. Click Insert/Hole to see the Add hole dialog.

3. Choose the type of hole that you want to define. The rest of the dialog configures to show the details appropriate to the selected hole type. 4. Enter the details for the hole and then click Add to create it.

To add a pre-defined shape
TEDDS includes details for many standard sections via the Data Lists tool. The Section Properties Tool recognises many of these shapes automatically representing them as groups of primary shapes. Alternatively for many of the standard shapes used throughout engineering the Section Properties Tool allows you to pick the shape you require, and then to enter its details through a dialog. In this way you can create and use many fabricated shapes within TEDDS. The Section Properties Tool adopts a simple approach when mapping pre-defined sections into shapes known to the Section Properties Tool. Thus, for example, channel sections with tapered flanges are mapped to three rectangles, ignoring the taper of the flange and the root and toe radii completely. You should check the adequacy of this approach whenever you use pre-defined sections.

TEDDS Documentation page 84

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

1. Click (

) or Insert/pre-defined Shape… to see the Select Shape dialog.

2. Choose whether you want to retrieve the information for a Standard Shape from the Data Lists, in which case you must choose the type of section you want to work with from a list of available sections. Alternatively choose the option to enter the details for a Custom Library Shape yourself. Once you have made your selection click Add.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 85

3. If you want to retrieve the information already held by TEDDS for a standard shape, then you will see a Data List from which you should make your selection.

Once you click Select the Section Properties Tool transfers the details for the section and creates primary shapes for you. The shape is placed at the canvas origin by default, but remains selected so that you can move it to a new location immediately if this is necessary.

TEDDS Documentation page 86

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

4. If you choose the option to define a Custom Library Shape, then you will see the Custom Library Shape dialog.

From the list of shapes choose the standard shape which you want to create and then click Next >. You will see the Details dialog which you use to define the shape’s dimensions. A typical example is shown below.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 87

I Section

Simply enter the details which the shape requires and click Add. The Section Properties Tool creates the appropriate primary shapes for you. To indicate their position within your canvas move the pointer to the correct location and click the left mouse button.

Editing sections
Once you have added shapes to your canvas you can edit, group, rotate or move them.

To edit a shape
1. Select the single shape that you want to edit(1) and then: • click Edit/Shape(2), or

• click the shape that you want to edit with the right mouse button, and then click Edit Shape(2)
from the pop-up menu, or

• select a single shape and then drag the control handles around the shape to change its size.
Footnotes (1) If you have more than one shape selected, or if you have selected a group of shapes, then editing is prevented and the appropriate menu items are disabled. (2) You will see a dialog that is similar to the one you used to define the shape in the first place. Make any changes that you require and then click OK to make the modifications.

TEDDS Documentation page 88

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

Structuring your sections
As you create shapes, the Section Properties Tool places each new shape on top of any existing ones, and the new shape obscures any shapes that lie beneath it. You can change the order in which the shapes lie over each other by selecting a single shape and moving it up or down the pile of shapes one step at a time. Alternatively you can move a shape to the top or bottom of the pile directly. When you return your completed section to TEDDS it maintains the order of shapes for you. You can combine shapes into a group and then move that group up or down the pile of shapes in exactly the same way as for a single shape. Grouping is only intended to facilitate creation of the overall section, thus details of groups are not returned to TEDDS(1). If you select more than one object then these options are not available, so the toolbar buttons and menu items are disabled.

To select objects
1. To select an object click on that object with the left mouse button. This automatically deselects any other objects that are currently selected. 2. To add an object to your current selection press and hold the SHIFT key down while you click on the subsequent objects with the left mouse button. 3. To remove an object from your current selection hold the SHIFT key down and click the object to deselect it.

To move an object to the front
1. Select the object that you want to move to the front. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Bring to front and the object moves to the front of all other objects(2).

Footnotes (1) Groups are maintained if you save the canvas directly from the Section Properties Tool in its own generic (.spt) file format (2) If you choose a group then the existing order of the shapes within the group is maintained and the entire group is moved as a single unit.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 89

To move an object to the back
1. Select the object that you want to move to the back. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Send to back and the object moves behind all other objects(2).

To move an object forward
1. Select the object that you want to move forward. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Bring forward and the object moves above the object immediately in front of it on the canvas(2).

To move an object backward
1. Select the object that you want to move backward. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Send backward and the object moves behind the object immediately behind it on the canvas(2).

To create a group
1. Select the shapes that you want to group in the usual way. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Group to create a group containing the selected shapes.

Once you group shapes you can move and rotate the grouped shapes as a single entity. If you don’t group them, then each shape moves and rotates separately. You can select and add groups into other groups, thus building up a hierarchy of shapes. However when you return your section to TEDDS all grouping details are lost. Only the details of the primary shapes used in the calculation of the section properties will be maintained.

To destroy groups
1. Select the group that you want to destroy by selecting any shape in the group. The entire group will be selected. 2. Click ( ) or Structure/Ungroup to break the group apart into its constituent shapes.

TEDDS Documentation page 90

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

You can add groups into further groups. The Ungroup command and toolbar button remain available until there are no groups left and only shapes remain. At this point the Section Properties Tool disables the menu item and toolbar button.

Controlling the position of shapes on the canvas
The Section Properties Tool provides you with several different ways of positioning shapes on the canvas. When you create a shape using the keyboard you can not only specify its size but also the location of its centroid on the canvas. You can also use the Edit Shape facility to modify any aspect of the shape precisely including the location of its centroid. With this method the shape will always be placed at the point which you specify – it will not snap to the grid. In many cases you will find that using the grid allows you to create shapes not only with the precise size that you require, but also at exactly the right spot on your canvas. The Section Properties Tool also allows you to move shapes by: • dragging and dropping them on the canvas (either moving them freehand, or snapping them to the nearest grid point),

• nudging them, • entering offsets using the keyboard. To control whether the grid is displayed
The grid is displayed as a series of small dots superimposed on your canvas. You can switch the grid on and off, irrespective of whether or not you want to snap to it. By default the Section Properties Tool shows the grid whenever it starts. 1. Click View/Grid to toggle the current grid view setting.

To control snapping to the grid
You can choose to snap to the grid as you create shapes and to snap objects to the grid as you move them by dragging them with the pointer. By default snapping to the grid is switched on when you start the Section Properties Tool. 1. Click View/Snap to Grid on Drag to control the current grid snap setting.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 91

To switch angle snapping on or off
When you rotate shapes you can also limit the allowable rotations to multiples of 15°. You can switch this feature on and off at will. If it is off the Section Properties Tool allows any rotation, if it is on then the Section Properties Tool only allows rotations of 15°, 30°, 45°, … 90°, … 180°, … 270°, … 330°, 345°, 360°. By default Section Properties Tool switches snapping to an angle on when it starts. 1. Click View/Angle Snap to control the current grid angle snapping setting.

Moving objects
The Section Properties Tool provides you with several ways to move objects that you have already defined on your canvas. Related topics

• “To select objects”.

To move by dragging and dropping
1. Select the shape(s) and/or group(s) that you want to move. 2. Move the pointer over one of the selected shape(s) and/or group(s), then press and hold down the left mouse button. 3. Now drag the selected shape(s) and/or group(s) to the required location(1). 4. Finally release the mouse button to drop the shape(s) and/or group(s) in their new location.

To move by nudging
1. Select the shape(s) and/or group(s) that you want to move. 2. Use the nudge buttons ( ) or the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the selected shape(s) and/or group(s) in the appropriate direction in steps equal to the current grid spacing in that direction.

Footnotes (1) If you have Snap to Grid on Drag switched on, then the top left hand corner of the bounding box for all the selected objects will snap to the nearest grid point as you move the pointer.

TEDDS Documentation page 92

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

If you hold the Shift key down and use the buttons from the Nudge toolbar to move the selected shape(s) and / or group(s), then they move by one unit in the selected direction. The unit of movement depends on the size of canvas as tabulated below.

Canvas Size
2 m x 1.5 m 21 m x 15 m 210 m x 150 m 328 in x 234 in 109 ft x 75 ft 875 ft x 625 ft

Unit
0.1 mm 1 mm 10 mm 1/64” 1/16” 1/2”

To move using the keyboard
1. Select the object that you want to move. 2. Click Edit/Move Object… or Move Object… from the popup menu. The dialog you see depends on whether you select a shape or a group. If you select a shape, then the dialog depends on the type of shape. A typical example is shown below.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 93

Enter the distances by which you want to move the selected object. For rectangles and triangles you can move the shape along either the global or the local coordinate axis system (or even along both coordinate systems together). For circles and groups, only the global coordinate system is relevant and so the Section Properties Tool disables the local axis options. If you select more than one object, then you can not move these using the keyboard. 3. Once you have entered the appropriate distances click Move.

Rotating objects
When you create a shape you can specify its rotation from the global axis system where this is appropriate. For all shapes and groups you can apply rotations using the mouse.

To rotate objects
1. Select the objects that you want to rotate. 2. If you want to set or remove the option to constrain the rotation to increments of 15°, then click View/Angle Snap. 3. Click ( ) Rotation from the Section Properties Tool toolbar.

TEDDS Documentation page 94

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

4. Move the pointer over one of the selected object, click and hold the left mouse button and drag the object until you achieve the desired rotation (outlines show you exactly what the rotation will achieve). This depends on the grouping of the object being rotated. If a series of separate objects are rotated each object will be rotated about the centre of its bounding box.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 95

If the objects are grouped (in two groups of three in the example shown below), then each group will rotate about the centre of its bounding box.

TEDDS Documentation page 96

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

If all the items are grouped, then the whole group will rotate about the centre of its bounding box.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 97

The objects above are shaded to aid your visualisation, in practice all objects have the same colour. 1. Once the rotation is correct release the mouse button and the shapes and groups will be rotated. Related topics

• “To select objects”, • “To switch angle snapping on or off”.

Snapping objects with respect to each other
The Section Properties Tool provides you with one further option for positioning shapes on your canvas, to position pairs of objects with respect to each other. Obviously to do this you need to have two objects selected. When you select multiple objects, you will see that the squares which indicate the corners of the bounding box for the last object that you have selected are coloured grey. The colour of the squares for other objects is white. This colouring is important for the snap features.

TEDDS Documentation page 98

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

If you select the objects in the wrong order, then you can hold the SHIFT key down and click over the object twice (to deselect it and then select it again). However, if you hold the CTRL key down and single click the object this achieves the same effect. Related topics

• “To select objects”.

To snap objects
1. Choose the two objects that you want to snap to one another. Ensure that the bounding box squares on the object that you want to move are grey, and that the bounding box squares on the object that is to remain stationary are white. 2. Click Snap Objects ( ) or Edit/Snap Objects… (Snap Objects… from the popup menu). The Snap Objects dialog allows you to control the snap.

3. Use the Snapping buttons to select the face on the stationary object to which you want the moving object to snap. 4. If you also want to align the objects with each other, then choose the appropriate Align option. These options depend on whether you are snapping to the top or bottom face (None, Left, Centre, Right) or to a side face (None, Top, Centre, Bottom) of the stationary object 5. If you want to move the object once you have snapped (and optionally aligned) it, then enter the Move shape by distance for the moving object. You can only move the object parallel to the face that has been snapped. The alternate move field is disabled.

Chapter 8 : Section Properties Tool

TEDDS Documentation page 99

6. Once you have set the Snap Shape settings that you require click OK to perform the snap. This has three separate stages: • The snap process first snaps the opposite edge of the bounding box of the moving object to the selected edge of the bounding box of the selected object.

• Next (if alignment has been selected) the two objects are aligned as requested. • Finally, any Move shape by distance is applied to the moving object.

Other Section Properties Tool features
Other features are available in the Section Properties Tool. The items below are features that you may find of particular interest.

To return properties to TEDDS
You can copy the details for a section back to TEDDS at any stage. If you calculate the calculations again, then the details in TEDDS are used to generate the shapes and holes, however grouping is not maintained. 1. Manipulate the shapes in your section until it is as you want it, then click Copy to Calcs ( ) or File /Copy to Calcs and Exit. The details of all the shapes in the section and the overall section properties are returned to TEDDS ready for use in further calculations and the Section Properties Tool is closed.

To view section properties
You can view the properties of your section as it stands at any time.
